I am excited to be joining 12 other artists in Gallery35’s upcoming exhibit—Expressions of the Self—who have risen to the challenge of creating work that defines “how we see ourselves” using a variety of media and employing realism, abstraction, caricature, metaphor and interactivity with the viewer.
I will be exhibiting three expressions of my self.
A Patterned Life is an abstract arrangement of artistic elements representing the times and interests of my life: plaid for my years of teaching, coding and paint splotches for my second career as an artist, musical notation for musical and dance interests, waves for an earlier life at the Jersey shore, skyscrapers for my later adventures in NYC and a big zia for my current abode in New Mexico.
Embracing the Unknown features my shadow superimposed on one of the slot canyons at Tent Rocks, NM, visually illustrating the leap of faith that has accompanied me on each of my life transitions.
Hairs’ the Thing is a humorous look at nine hairstyles re-discovered from photos of myself from my early twenties onward. Those of a certain age will recognize the sassoon, the flip, the mullet and the Farah Fawcett among others.
